The NEXUS Institute
The NEXUS Institute is one of 92 high school youth theology institutes funded by the Lilly Endowment, under the oversight of the Forum for Theological Enrichment. NEXUS exists to transform the landscape of the Lutheran Church through innovative and intentional development of young adults who want to be more involved in the nexus of faith, life, and the church.
The institute is a life-changing opportunity where young adults engage in theological learning, leadership development, and vocational discernment, all in the context of intentional Christian community, and are sent out to transform their local communities.

Welcome to the NEXUS Institute
Full-time ministry is not what it used to be. We need to chart a new course. If you want to get below the surface of simplistic understandings of church and God and how Scripture and faith intersect with the world around you, NEXUS is the place.
Summer 2024 - July 21-27, 2024
Our God is a god of action. There’s nowhere we see this more clearly than the example of Jesus incarnate. Join us as we explore the many ways Jesus acted while on earth and how we can follow him: JESUS VERBS.
